Spark! Talk Title: The F Word: Forgiving or Faking
Sheba Williams was born and raised in Richmond, VA. She is a Norfolk State University alum with a Bachelor's Degree in Business Management, she has professional licenses in Cosmetology and Barbering, and her Master Instructor's license. In 2012, Sheba began working exclusively as a mobile barber stylist, traveling to clients anywhere from DC to NC. Meeting so many people from different walks of life and being actively involved in so many community service projects, Sheba found that more people than she realized had at least one thing in common with her... a felony conviction. Her passion for helping others be more than a conviction led to her starting a nonprofit, Nolef Turns Inc. in 2016. The organization was birthed to be a support system for those with justice and court involvement but quickly evolved into a day to day fight for removing the policies and stigmas around a past conviction.
